The SMArt Devices and SMArt Systems Leader.
TZ fuses software control, remote locking and fastening, environmental sensing and real time dynamic analysis to enable unique devices to sense, act, lock and audit activity based on secure instructions delivered over the internet. This enables rich data collection and diagnostic abilities.
TZ Devices use proprietary Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuation to drive locking mechanisms. SMA actuation is a lightweight, solid-state alternative to conventional actuators. TZ Device intelligence comes from an embedded system that consists of a microprocessor, energy switching, and integrated sensors that monitor status.
Working together intelligently, a network of TZ Devices offers a secure environment providing a complete, real-time view of the state of that protected environment. The ability to track the behaviour of people, things and data through space in real-time provides enhanced situational awareness, allowing for the creation of more effective and efficient operating conditions and workflow practices.
Welcome to a New World of Connected People, Devices And Manufactured Objects.
Over the past decade, billions of people have connected themselves to the Internet via the computer and more recently, mobile devices. Today, that communication revolution — the most pervasive technology event on earth — is extending to objects as well as people. The ‘Internet of People’ has become the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), whereby virtually all objects around us can exchange information and work in synergy to significantly improve the efficiency of our businesses, the security of our assets and the quality of our lives.
TZ has been at the forefront of IOT research and development since 2004. Over the last 10 years, TZ’s dedicated in-house development team (industrial designers, mechanical, electronic and software engineers) have assisted many companies in implementing their IOT strategies and applications. TZ’s intelligent, remotely actuated Smart Locking Devices have been deployed in aerospace, military, logistics, IT and automotive applications.
